lymphoedema in GOOD arm

lymphoedema in GOOD arm After a very scary few days saw consultant today who thinks arm swelling in side of prophylatic mastectomy could just be due to him damaging some of lymph glands during op rather than anything sinister. Has anyone heard of this before-or got it?Breast nurse seemed not to have seen it before!Am having armpit scanned on thurs and also CT scan just as added precaution as well as bloods so feel reassurred a lot more.
hope someone out there has some info!!

Good luck with your scan on Thursday
